1. Yoga. Sure, this may be the last thing you really want to do but physical activity is good for body, mind and spirit. The great thing about yoga is that you can match the yoga to your mood. If you're dragging, try a high intensity vinyassa flow. If you're really worn out, a passive Yin class could be ideal.
2. Meditate. Ten minutes of silently focusing on your breathing - inhaling and exhaling - can leave you feel refreshed mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically.3. Chant. Chanting a mantra lifts you spirits no matter how low they may be.
4. Inspire yourself. Tune into a podcast of someone who has overcome a major life trauma. This will inspire you to keep chipping away at whatever issue you face.
5. Create a gratitude list. Write down a dozen things which are good, right, positive in your life. Don't think too much about it or censor yourself. Just let the gratitude flow out of you.
6. Practice generosity. Donate money to a person in need or to a charity. "There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up” noted John Holmes.
7. Change your posture. Your body reflects how you feel. Hold your head high, straighten your back when you walk anywhere.
8. Spend time in nature. Take a long, leisurely stroll through the neighborhood, a park or a forested area. Nature soothes. Author Sylvia Plath observed: "I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, 'This is what it is to be happy.' "
9. Smile more. This means smiling at everyone you encounter. Make eye contact as you smile. Yoko Ono says: "Smile in the mirror. Do that every morning and you'll start to see a big difference in your life."
10. Affirmations. Create or select a positive, life affirming phrase and repeat it several times a day. Some examples - I can do this! I am confident and capable! I can deal with this! Make this a habit and you be sure to cut back on so much negative self-talk that we all do.
